Serah x Snow 2When I originally set off on my journey with Noel to find Lightning, I prayed that it wouldn't last long. I was right, but not in the way that I had thought it would end. It happened back in Academia 4XXAF, when we learned that Alyssa and Caius were cooperating in order to lead us into a trap. We would've fallen right into it, too.Serah x Snow 23 years ago in Romance More Like This
That is, had it not been for my hero, Snow.
When Snow and I left to look for the thirteen crystals Lightning wanted him to find, I tried to ask him a lot of things. Like how did he become a l'Cie and how did he come across the whole finding the crystals adventure, but he had always avoided my questions. But, after awhile, I decided to wait to ask him seriously. I took the opportunity to enjoy being with him again, I'm finally with him after three years of being without him. And I was, for the first time in a long time, really happy.

I say Hello! To other Lightis fans[LightningxNoctis) here. I want to welcome you all to my fanfiction that I have worked on in all purposes to please my inner-fangirl for my favorite Final Fantasy ship to date. I like this pairing, even though it's impossible, they're still hot.
I'm not big into crossovers, but I Loved (with a capital L) Lightning ever since I first played the game.
As for Noctis. Was in love with the man when I first saw him in [insert gasp here] 2006! I forgot about Final Fantasy Versus XIII for about two years when I returned at 2008 I was surprised it was still not out yet. Eventually, I finally played XIII and XIII-2 was about to come out, I became member of the Lightis ship. 2012 arrived and the game is still not out yet, so I started this.
I did my research concerning Versus Universe. Seen all trailers and read all Nomura/SE interviews and then some. I hope that by the time the game releases, a lot of the names I included in here are

That afternoon, Cloud returned early from his deliveries. Tifa, who was still tending bar, was surprised to see him come through the front door and approached to greet him cheerfully.
"You're early." She said with a smile. "How was the delivery?"
"Good." He replied as he placed some boxes on the floor. Tifa raised an eyebrow after hearing his cool response.

That night, Cloud gets back from his delivery service and he arrived late to the bar. He didn't want Tifa to be mad at him so he peeps before entering from the front door. There wasn't anyone around and he let out a sigh as a relief before he made his way into the bar without getting notice. And just when he thought that he was going to get away with it, Tifa pops out of nowhere.
"Where do you think you're going?" She crosses her arms and frowned. Cloud stopped his steps and immediately closed his eyes in frustration. Slowly he turns his head to face Tifa but he was afraid to see her expression.

Believe it or not, there was a reason why Tifa hugged Cloud longer and more often lately than she ever did. Yes, the fact that he gave her butterflies had something to do with it. Another reason was that she wanted to stay as close to him as was humanly possible, but there was more to it; when she happened to discover how immensely good his aftershave smelled on him, she decided that she had every right to indulge in it from that moment on. She was his almost-but-not-quite girlfriend, after all. Besides, she was pretty sure that the ex-SOLDIER didn't mind anyway; otherwise he wouldn't hug her back.
You could even go as far as call Tifa's current...obsession a guilty pleasure. Especially what with the way she was behaving. Every morning, she would always let the blond go to the bathroom first, after the children were done, of course. In the meantime, she would prepare their breakfast. That way, she would have the bathroom all

It was another shining morning on February 13. It would certainly be a special day since "Valentine’s day" will arrive tomorrow once again. And like every good year, the Seventh Heaven offers a special service for customers.
Tifa was feeling so tired she could barely wake up that morning. So, she went to the bathroom to wash her face and then peered into the mirror with determination. - Okay Tifa, today is the big day. I will tell everything to Cloud. Yes, I can’t put it off any longer. I'll arm myself with courage and tell him. – She affirmed. -Tell me what? – Said a male voice.
Cloud entered the bathroom at that moment and overheard what she said. –What is that you can’t postpone anymore? – He insisted in a whisper.

It was almost 8 in the morning and neither of us had gotten out of bed. Despite the late hour, we both continued sleeping in the same bed without disturbing each other. The sun's rays fell into the room which made Tifa opened her eyes because of the glare. When she cleared her vision, her eyes widened when she saw that me sleeping in her bed. At that time, she probably would have reacted violently and would have kicked me out; but it was the opposite. For some reason, she kept looking at me, carefully, studying each of my features. I guess it was unusual to see me so vulnerable, so she laid her head back on the pillow to watch me sleep.
She suddenly brought her hand up to meet my face and caressed my cheek, gently. I instantly opened my eyes when I felt her touch and my vision was a bit blurry at first but then I could see her face. She was staring at me with those big eyes of her’s and she smiled warmly.

That answer so brief, besides the previous yawning, plus the fact that Hope had been lately taking a long time to make any comments when he used to spend most of the time speaking with her, made Lightning sigh. She glanced at the sky; it was getting dark, which meant they had been almost three days working coordinately without pauses of any kind.

The next morning, I woke up with a heavy tiredness because of the lack of sleep I had last night. I slept for only 4 hours or less and I was still feeling a bit drowsy. But even so, I didn’t complain about it. I needed to vent a few things and last night really helped me out with the stress that I was developing from work.
As usual, I got out of bed to take a cold shower and then went to get myself some coffee to start the day. As expected, Tifa and the children were still sleeping upstairs, so I tried to not make too much noise so I wouldn't wake them. I took my things and then went to work on Fenrir.
That night, I returned very late from work. It was already 11 pm and I was feeling much more weary than usual; so I went straight to bed to get some rest and didn’t even bother to undress myself. As soon as I laid on the bed, my cell phone started ringing.

But he had decided to take the risk again.
He knew he was protected against darkness.

He ran a hand over the wall. He felt the cold touch of the tiles, but he was able to sense that warm spark on it…
However, the wall resisted his efforts to unravel its secrets. He had begun to think it wasn't him who had to solve the mystery.

The sudden appearance of that rune in that wall, months ago, had fueled his anticipation. Although it only shone for a few seconds.

As every afternoon, Hope had left his house to watch the sunset from one of the high, steep cliffs of the Shrine's Lands, the most remote and desolate island of the four that composed the fragile world of Nova Chrysalia.
He had been doing so since he settled down at that ravaged place centuries ago. The sunset had something that calmed the aching loneliness that devoured his heart for so much time.
Although he chose solitude by himself, somehow it had been imposed to him by the gods, in many ways.
That thought made him squint his light-colored eyes, the same green color of sea waters, while staring at the huge but ruinous silhouetted shrine of the goddess Etro. Behind it, enormo
